If you want to follow the 14-day ride, they started on June 21st  from Pittsburgh and will end in Philadelphia on July 3rd. Scroll to June 26 when they arrived in Harrisburg and Day #8 6/27 ( 3 parts ) and Day# 9 6/28 (2 parts). Lou Searles led the ride on 6/28 and will share the HBC participants in his report. That special ride had many memorable experiences as well. 

There were so many highlights on 6/27 … it is almost impossible to pick out a few. The morning ride on the river with Dick Norford and Dave Raup sharing historical stops to HACC, at the 911 memorial on the Public Safety campus. Director Randy Padfield speaking to us and the cadets  He was a first responder from Harrisburg deployed to New York City. Dodging the rain to the State Capital where we met Senator Devin Robinson and was recognized on the Senate floor. Roxy’s for a delicious lunch. So, many peoplet hank that help make this day so special for us and the 911 cycling delegates. Dr. Ski , Bob Stakem, Director Randy Padfield, all the HBC members who rode that day and their kindness to everyone. I was filled with joy. I highly suggest that you read the Facebook pages or check out what we posted on our HBC Facebook group page. If you do not follow us… join. There are many interesting stories, and it is another way to stay updated with HBC, the local biking community and more!
